Question about 2001 Renault Sportwagon

Open Question

I cannot select any gear other than 5th of the 5 speed manual transmission in my 2001 Renault Scenic MPV / sportswagon. This occurred after the front suspension bottomed out going into a sandy 'boghole' on a dirt road and the left side radiator bottom mount bracket was ripped back about 170 degrees. Motor still runs well and clutch operates as it should. But gear selector will move around in neutral & forward into 5th, but no other gear can be selected. I'm told there's a cover I could unbolt & open to access the gear change mechanism as it's possible that the selector arms have moved on their shaft. Any comments please on above? Phill

SOURCE: renault scenic drivers electric window motor runs

The track guide that operates the window from the motor is damaged or has jumped track. Remove the inner door panel and operate the window and see which has happened. If it has jumped track check for missing or damaged guide retainers if it is damaged or broken replace it. Normally runs about $15 to $20 for the part. Now if the drive guide is not damaged and it is still not working the gear that drives it is damaged and you will need to replace the motor as this is pressed on and not user replaceable. Good Luck

SOURCE: inner door panel removal, renault megane scenic

On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls

SOURCE: My Renault Megane Scenic S reg heater is not working

Most likely to be a faulty resistor block, which has 3 resistors and a thermal fuse controlling fan speeds 1,2 and 3, maximum speed 4 by-passes the resister block. It may also be poor electrical connections to the resistor block caused by overheating. Renault ask for approximately £350 to carry out repairs, a replacement resistor block will cost £50. If you decide to carry out the repairs yourself, be advised that if you are not competent to carry out such work you, could cause electrical damage or worse an electrical fire.

Have a 2000 Renault scenic 1.6 16v and have a gear selection problem only for 4th gear all the other gears select and 4th gear selects very hard and then jumps out of gear straight away when selected.


Sounds like it has run low of transmission oil. You may be able to save it by draining the gear lube and refill with DELCO synthetic Automatic transmission fluid. Make sure level is correct. The 4th gear syncro is bad, but the Delco ATF will help.

Cant change gear very well in my renault scenic 1.4


I am assuming its a manual, if it is having trouble fitting into multiple gears, its probably the idle gear, which is the one that should be going an appropriate speed when you are trying to mesh gears (with the help of synchronizers which could also be the problem) and if its not going the right speed, then it will have some difficulties meshing. try this method. when you are going to switch gears, depress the clutch pedal, pull it out of gear, then when still in between gears, let the pedal out, then depress the pedal again, and select your gear. this is the "double clutch" method that commercial truck drivers use with transmissions that do not even have synchronizers in them and should work for you. if this does not work (or if it does but its such a pain to you that you still want to get it fixed) then go to a transmission shop and have it looked at

Just bought the car cheap and the gear stick is 5 speed and selects 5th gear but when driving and in 5th gear its like in netual and the gear selectors bushing is worn bodjed sum tape on it and still...


On these WC Volkswagens, you have to make sure that the little ball-and-socket gear linkages are connected. If one is off, replace it with new, because the old one will probably pop off again. If there is no problem there and you can select 5th gear, and then only later does it "pop out" of gear, then the spline lock rings have worn where the mating surfaces of each spline tip don't provide a positive "lock" when under power. Some folks think that when a transmission "pops out" when driving, it is the syncronizers. This is never true. (Even Click and Clack get this one wrong continuously.) The syncronizers are responsible for clashing gears during the gear selecting action.
A transmission rebuild is in order if the thing pops out of gear. Good luck.
